Joomla - Missing Joomla Update quick icon from Control Panel after upgrade
  • Joomla 2.5
  • Installing - updating

Have seen this quite a few times especially on upgrades from Joomla 1.6 or 1.7. the quick icons for the joomla version and extensions updates are missing from the control panel and no menu for the Joomla Updater. There can also be messages such as 'Error loading component: com_joomlaupdate'.

You need to do some insertions in your jos_extensions table which seems to get missed sometimes on the update.

Go to your hosting control panel and access your phpMyAdmin and browse to your database. Select your jos_extensions table and click on the SQL tab.

insert the following query into the panel and click 'GO' (check the table prefix is correct and edit as nesscesary - also make sure the id numbers aren't in use - if change them to a free one)

INSERT INTO `jos_extensions` (`extension_id`, `name`, `type`, `element`, `folder`, `client_id`, `enabled`, `access`, `protected`, `manifest_cache`, `params`, `custom_data`, `system_data`, `checked_out`, `checked_out_time`, 
`ordering`, `state`) VALUES
(437, 'plg_quickicon_joomlaupdate', 'plugin', 'joomlaupdate', 'quickicon', 0, 1, 1, 1, '', '{}', '', '', 0, '0000-00-00 00:00:00', 0, 0),
(438, 'plg_quickicon_extensionupdate', 'plugin', 'extensionupdate', 'quickicon', 0, 1, 1, 1, '', '{}', '', '', 0, '0000-00-00 00:00:00', 0, 0);
 
The icons will appear.. :)

When you click the Icons you may get something like 'Error loading component: com_joomlaupdate' or/and 'Error loading component: com_installer'.

You will need 1 or 2 more queries to be run.
INSERT INTO `jos_extensions` (`extension_id`, `name`, `type`, `element`, `folder`, `client_id`, `enabled`, `access`, `protected`, `manifest_cache`, `params`, `custom_data`, `system_data`, `checked_out`, `checked_out_time`, `ordering`, `state`) VALUES (28, 'com_joomlaupdate', 'component', 'com_joomlaupdate', '', 1, 1, 0, 1, '{"legacy":false,"name":"com_joomlaupdate","type":"component","creationDate":"February 2014","author":"Joomla! Project","copyright":"(C) 2005 - 2014 Open Source Matters. All rights reserved.\\t","authorEmail":"

an/or
INSERT INTO `jos_extensions` (`extension_id`, `name`, `type`, `element`, `folder`, `client_id`, `enabled`, `access`, `protected`, `manifest_cache`, `params`, `custom_data`, `system_data`, `checked_out`, `checked_out_time`, `ordering`, `state`) VALUES (10, 'com_installer', 'component', 'com_installer', '', 1, 1, 1, 1, '{"legacy":false,"name":"com_installer","type":"component","creationDate":"Febuary 2014","author":"Joomla!

The last thing needed is the menu entry for the Components which is probably also missing.
INSERT INTO `jos_menu` (`id`, `menutype`, `title`, `alias`, `note`, `path`, `link`, `type`, `published`, `parent_id`, `level`, `component_id`, `ordering`, `checked_out`, `checked_out_time`, `browserNav`, `access`, `img`, `template_style_id`, `params`, `lft`, `rgt`, `home`, `language`, `client_id`) VALUES
(22, 'menu', 'com_joomlaupdate', 'Joomla! Update', '', 'Joomla! Update', 'index.php?option=com_joomlaupdate', 'component', 0, 1, 1, 28, 0, 0, '0000-00-00 00:00:00', 0, 0, 'class:joomlaupdate', 0, '', 41, 42, 0, '*', 1);
